E-scooters offer the potential for fast, clean and inexpensive travel; however, these benefits can only be achieved if e-scooters are used safely and as part of a wider integrated transport network. Transport for Greater Manchester are working with Rochdale Borough Council, Salford City Council, and e-scooter operator Lime as part of a wider Department for Transport trial to see how e-scooter rental schemes can be successfully operated in the UK.

Alongside the Department for Transport's research, the University of Salford is conducting a study into the Salford trial investigating who is using e-scooters, why they are using them and people's attitudes towards their use. This will help inform the Department for Transport and Transport for Greater Manchester about the future role that e-scooters can have in our transport network.
